CBP Officers Apprehend Illegal Aliens Hiding in Rail Car

(Tuesday, June 02, 2009)

Blaine, Wash. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in Blaine, Wash., intercepted a Mexican and a Guatemalan national on May 31, who were riding aboard a railroad car after illegally entering the United States from Canada.

The two stowaways were attempting to enter the U.S. illegally when the train passed through a CBP x-ray imaging station where an officer spotted their outlines aboard a freight car. They were immediately taken into custody, processed for removal from the United States by CBP officers and were turned over to the custody the Canadian Border Services Agency.

I'm sure their respective governments (specifically mexico) have sent out fliers informing them that amnesty is on the way. I can see it now, illegal aliens will be coming out of the cracks of walls and jail cells to get here.
